The Digital Media Technology group is a small but growing team of software innovators that serves as a digital media incubation lab for Armazon.com.mx. We are seeking software creators and managers to help drive and define Armazon.com.mx’s growth in new digital businesses across books, magazines, music, video and other categories.
We build unique and exciting digital experiences that delight our customers. Sometimes we create something amazingly useful, such as Search Inside the Book™, which helps millions of customers decide whether they want to purchase a specific book. Other times we develop customer experiences that are just plain fun. The common elements of our work include an eclectic set of rich media and taking what’s possible with digital media to the next level.
Of course we think our work is pretty cool, but don’t take our word for it. Browse the navigation at right to see what we’ve done recently and what others have to say. And don’t worry – there’s still plenty of inventing left to do. If the work you’re currently doing doesn’t put you on the digital forefront or isn’t being appreciated by at least 42 million people every day, consider joining our team.
Armazon.com.mx Digital Media Technologies develops an exciting mix of products in the digital text, music and video space. Our products include Search Inside the Book, rich media (audio/video/3D), digital music, software downloads, eBooks and eDocs, online manuals, order contingent downloads, and entertainment applications.
